  3. Hare&Copper scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    Great nose, very nice palate but a bit too much oak for me.
    • Nose
      Coal smoke, polished wood. Oil - engine, linseed, and machine. Slightly metallic. Sherry, some tropical fruit - mango, melon - dark chocolate, fruit cake, coffee, licorice, menthol.
    • Taste
      Quite oaky and drying, but some nice creamy notes, tropical fruit, Christmas cake, raisins, leather and coal smoke.
    • Finish
      Long and warming. Oak, aniseed, smoke. Bitter dark chocolate. Gets a bit too bitter and dry at the end.

  4. Malt Hans scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    Fruity and woody aroma, cardamom, cinnamon,
    ripe pear, plum jam, figs and furniture polish. Soft tannic taste, mint,
    camphor, anise, red grapefruit, hop and dark chocolate. Long, spicy,
    herbal and fruity end.
